MediaFire, a popular file storage service favorited by many has just released a native Android app giving Android fans a way to access files stored in the MediaFire cloud servers, anytime, anywhere through Android devices. The app is eyed to be similar with the iOS version although at this time the Android app does not have all the nifty features just yet.
What’s good with the release of the app though is that you’ll be given 50GB of free storage upon creating an account. Take note however that you won’t be able to create your MediaFire account through the app right now. You will have to go to the MediaFire website to create a new account. For current users of MediaFire’s service via the desktop app, you can use your account credentials to log in to MediaFire via the Android app.
With all that being said, the MediaFire Android app has the following basic features right now:
- Keep all your important files at your fingertips
- View documents, spreadsheets, presentations, video, and listen to audio
- Take and upload pictures and videos directly in the MediaFire app
- Upload Android gallery images
- Create and manage folders of files
- Share files on the go via email, SMS, links and through other Android apps
- Quickly search all your MediaFire files and folders
According to MediaFire, the Android app is just one of the several announcements that they are going to make throughout 2013 which are all related to making online storage and collaboration easier and more affordable for everyone. Judging on how the Android app looks right now, it seems that MediaFire is pretty much in the right direction. With a few more tweaks on the MediaFire Android app, it could give Dropbox the leading cloud-based file-sharing service with mobile presence, a run for its money.
